The stethoscope evolved from a monaural to a binaural device in 1855, and separate heads were developed by Bowles (1894) and Sprague (1926). Grading of systolic murmurs was introduced by Samuel Levine in 1933. The acoustic principles of cardiovascular sound became better understood through the work of Rappaport and Sprague (1940s); and correlations were made with phonocardiography and cardiac catheterization by Paul Wood, Aubrey Leatham, Samuel Levine, and many others between 1950 and 1975. In 1961, physiologist Robert Rushmer proposed the acceleration-deceleration theory that is our current concept of the generation of normal and abnormal heart sounds.
Mason Sones's accidental injection of contrast directly into a right coronary artery (1958) was a serendipitous leap forward. The Judkin transfemoral approach (1967) simplified selective coronary catheterization. 23,24 Since then, the versatile cardiac catheter has continued to evolve, carrying delivery systems or instruments ranging from ultrasound, balloons, and stents to defibrillators (see Table 1â 1; Table 1â 2).
